National Consortium for Data Science White Paper Points to Challenges and Solutions for Genomics in the Age of Big Data

See on Scoop.itData Nerd’s Corner

A new public-private consortium aimed at advancing data science brings together data and genomics researchers to discuss the data challenges in genomics. This white paper summarizes their discussions.

Carla Gentry CSPO‘s insight:

The white paper, titled Data to Knowledge: Genomes to Health, resulted from the first NCDS Leadership Summit, held last April in Chapel Hill, NC. The summit brought together researchers in genomics and data science to discuss the greatest data challenges in genomic sciences and to brainstorm on possible solutions to those challenges. About 70 leaders in their fields attended the summit and identified the genomic science data challenges in the areas of data provenance, collection and management, delineation of phenotypes, adjudication of genomic variants, biostatistics and bioinformatics, data sharing, and ethics and the law.
